Here’s the thing. We know you’re probably being bombarded with more than a few emails today asking you for donations, and you’re smart people. You know the drill about how to donate and the like. While ticket sales are our main source of revenue (thank you!), we still rely on fundraising for 35% of our overall operating budget.
Not only are we hoping you’ll help give to the max in support of the Playhouse, we too are also giving to the max. For every $100 donation to the Playhouse, we’re giving 10 free tickets to a local nonprofit service group.
We can’t thank you enough for a century filled with your support. Here’s to 100 more! (On that note, did you know November 17th is our official 100th birthday? We’re having a little party, and you should join us! Find details on our Facebook event.)

Thank you! Merci! Gracias! Gratzzi! Danke! and Thank You about 1,000 more times! Keep on reading to find out more about what Give to the Max Day is and why it’s important.
What is Give to the Max Day?
Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN.org, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make Minnesota a better place. It is the great Minnesota give together: a day when thousands of Minnesotans raise millions of dollars for local nonprofits. Since its inception in 2009, GiveMN.org has raised more than $95 million for Minnesota nonprofits and schools through this program.
Why should I give to the Duluth Playhouse on Give to the Max Day?
The Duluth Playhouse has more than 100 years under its belt, making it the largest, oldest, most successful presenting theatre in the Upper Midwest. The Playhouse produces an average of 150 performances annually, delighting audiences from across the region. With a full main stage season, Children’s Theatre season, Education program and the addition of the newest satellite theatre, The Underground, there is something for everyone! It is a place of learning and growth.
This Give to the Max, we’re giving 10 free tickets to a local nonprofit service group for every $100 donation to the Playhouse.
